George Edward Davenport (1833-1907) was a businessman and botanist from Boston who chiefly studied ferns. He was a member of the Mass Hort Society, New England Botanical Club, Torrey Botanical Club, and The Middlesex Scientific Field Club as a founding member. He published articles relating to ferns, forestry, and horticulture in many botanical journals. Davenport was also active in promoting the conservation of the Middlesex Fells, was a long-time member of the Medford School Committee (starting in 1892), had been involved in the anti-slavery movement, and was interested in labor reform. Davenport was married to Mary Francis and had ten children, eight of whom survived him. They moved from South Boston to Medford in 1875, and he died in 1907 while taking a walk in the Middlesex Fells.
